Optional Additional Research Essential Packages

We offer Research Essential Packages to provide assistance with designing a project or analyzing the results. Our team will guide you, providing valuable insight with one-on-one consulting. Packages consists of approximately 5 hours of total consulting time, including:

  • An initial phone conversation to gather background information on your project, its purpose, and progress thus far. Together, we identify areas needing the most support.
  • A CSI consultant’s time to work on areas of the project that require the most hands- on assistance and develop materials to best assist you.
  • A second phone call where the researched information is presented. Together with the consultant you discuss the best course of action to strengthen your research and put you on track for a successful Group Concept Mapping project.
